Hey 121J since this project correlate with a project that I'm doing, may I ask few questions:
- if this mod require Japan ROM, does that mean you have coded all the routines?
No, I'm not that skilled. I think the only real hex editing work I did was pointer editing for battle messages and a search and replace for changing e.g. Butz to Bartz. I used this utility, which modifies the RPGe patch. I just chose to create the IPS file from the japanese ROM for simplicity's sake.
- Are you familiar with internals - what format are fonts, font characteristics, widths for VWF and where I can find them in the ROM.
- Do you have full TBL of each font, I'm especially interested in command entries like New Page, Wait for Input, ...
Not really. Again I used the previously mentioned utility for this - it allowed me to insert images and widths for the fonts. This also came with .tbl files for the RPGe patch - by default it will generate new .tbl files upon first launch if none are detected. I was able to find a ROM map on the slickproductions wiki (I think) but the site seems to be down (i.e. I can't access it). Bear in mind the utility I mentioned is also hosted on slickproductions.
